Harvesting lettuce isn't new. I've posted time and time again about the lettuce I've been harvesting this winter. I harvested lettuce in December. I harvested lettuce in January, and I harvested lettuce in February.
Last month, I also posted about my broccoli starting to flower. Well, the temperatures have dipped back down, so we are still harvesting broccoli. Although the heads are tiny, they're still delicious!
I even harvested a few Brussels sprouts. They melted in my mouth like butter! Yum!
The green peas are flowering - for the third time now. They flower, then get frozen. Again, and again. I'm hoping this time it won't freeze again! Not a good track record for growing green peas through the winter. Next time I'll plant them in late winter/early spring instead of in the fall.
So, what's new?
Well, if you look very, very closely, you can see the very first asparagus spear peeking out!
I decided to give growing asparagus a try - in a stock tank. The reason behind the stock tank (with holes drilled in the bottom) was twofold. First, hopefully they get the winter chill they need. That's the main reason asparagus is not grown here - not enough winter chill. Perhaps this will be a good solution to that problem.
And secondly, since they stay in the ground, I felt like this dedicated container would be a good way for me to remember not to dig them up.
And do you want to see something else that's new?
Look! I'm enlarging my vegetable garden! Wahoo! I love being able to harvest vegetables throughout the entire year. I've even talked a few strangers I've met here and there into starting their own vegetable garden! If you live in this area, you really should give growing vegetables a try. It's amazing how much you can harvest each month!
But, that was just the teaser. I'll dedicate an entire post to that project later. I'll tell all my tips and tricks. You'll see how easy it can be to make your own vegetable garden.
I'm joining The Gardening Blog for Garden Bloggers Harvest Day. Are you harvesting any vegetables this month?
